Glamorous Hollywood? Not so much actually. It's more cheesy and bling bling Hollywood these days. I saw Jimi Hendrix's star and Frank Sinatra's star in the first fifty steps and that was good enough for me. I recommend the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Grauman's Chinese Theatre and that's about it for the strip.

Once I fled tourist town, I headed north. I spotted the legendary Hollywood sign from afar and attended a mellow mansion party tucked away in the hills. A DJ spun tunes near the pool and a crowd huddled around the warm bonfire pit. There was an open bar and lots of mini hamburger hors-d'oeuvres circling the party. It was the perfect spot for a couple of cocktails before making my way to Voyeur. This nightclub is now one of the hottest places to party in LA. With extremely selective screening, it's almost impossible to get in without connections. Once inside though, it's a whole other world. The venue is decorated in exposed brick, antique chandeliers, leather couches and brass tables. It features 1920s glass windows from the old New York Times building on West 43rd Street and one separate room is wallpapered in sexy photo filmstrips. All these pieces make it feel like an old boys pad where sophisticated men wearing velvet robes should smoke from a pipe and swirl fine Cognac.

It's not the furniture most will notice though as naked girls in erotic gear dance on the bars, suspend in harnesses and play in glass observatories. One woman was even intertwined in a fishing net that covered the ceiling of the club. As soon as I walked in, I immediately turned to my friends and told them we were being cast in the sequel of Eyes Wide Shut. After doing my research, I found out that the award-winning architect and designer Mark Zeff drew inspiration from that specific Stanley Kubrick film as well as Annabelle's of London. Other projects by Zeff include the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Sense and A Rosewood Spa at the Carlyle Hotel in New York.

Here are some pics I've included from the website and a personal photo of me on the dance floor. If you'd like to check out more on this provocative venue go to http://voyeur7969.com/index.html


  1. That is quite some club! I love your face in the last picture there, you seem more interested in the hanging girl than anyone who is not even barely noticing her!
